Phone Comparisons: iPhone 7 vs Google Pixel
Do we have a good one for you today – the iPhone 7 takes on its new rival from Google, the Google Pixel. The iPhone 7 did not physically change much since last year and still uses the all-metal look, although the antenna lines have been moved further to the top and bottom of the device to make them less noticeable. Apple also made changes to their Home button – it is no longer a physical button that clicks, but a touch-sensitive button – this could be Apple’s way of phasing out the button altogether. The Google Pixel uses a polished glass and metal combo design, which seems to be growing on consumers, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Pricing is high, but so are the specs for the most part. Just how does this new entry from Google stand up to the Apple iPhone 7? Let’s take a look at just what these two have in common before we take a closer look at each.
These two devices could not be further from each other specification-wise, but the way they perform is a whole other story. Physically, they are very close to the same size, although the larger Pixel device also has the larger display – 5.0-inches versus 4.7-inches – and weighs in at only 5 grams heavier. The displays use different technology and different resolutions. The iPhone 7 uses its own Apple A10 Fusion processor, and the Google Pixel uses the Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor. They both have non-expandable internal memory – the iPhone offers 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB while the Google Pixel offers 32GB or 128GB. The primary cameras are very close in size as are the front-facing cameras (FFC) and both take excellent photos. They both offer non-removable batteries, but the Pixel’s is much larger and offers rapid charge. Neither device has the standard 3.5mm earphone plug – they have been removed. You must now use an adapter (provided) or purchase Bluetooth set. The have the usual suspects – WiFi, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, and NFC (the iPhone’s is only good for Apple Pay), and they each have a connector for charging and data transfer but the Apple plug is proprietary, and the Google Pixel uses a standard Type-C reversible port.
